For Tracey Rooks, life with her grandparents on a Wyoming farm has always been simple. But after her grandmother’s death, Tracey is all her grandfather has. So when Eagle Elite University announces its annual scholarship lottery, Tracey jumps at the opportunity to secure their future and enters. She isn’t expecting much-but then she wins. And life as she knows it will never be same . . .
The students at Eagle Elite are unlike any she’s ever met . . . and they refuse to make things easy for her. There’s Nixon, gorgeous, irresistible, and leader of a group that everyone fears: The Elect. Their rules are simple. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. No matter how hard she tries to stay away, The Elect are always around her and it isn’t long until she finds out the reason why they keep their friends close and their enemies even closer. She just didn’t realize she was the enemy — until it was too late.
RachelVanDyken is a favorite author here at Bookish Temptations. Her male characters and books made a few of the top ten lists for 2013. For that reason, I decided to take on her series, Eagle Elite. I thought I knew from the summary what this series was about, but was intrigued and surprised at the turn that Rachel decided to take with her characters.
There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself – and of me.
But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice, the most important of my life. Drew already made his –in fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville. Alone. Well, sort of alone….
What I’ve come to realize is that old habits die hard and sometimes you have to go back to where you began, before you can move ahead.
TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.
Yeah. Yeah. I am so late to this party. Drew Evans has been featured and adored by everyone else here at BT, but apparently I wasn’t paying attention. You can check out the review of Tangled by Tamie and Elena here. This book made their top ten favorite lists for 2013! Better late than never right?
Today’s Sexy Sentence Saturday comes from my favorite book of 2013…Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard. Because the book hasn’t been out very long I’m choosing sentences that won’t be spoilerish for those who haven’t read it yet.
I’ve admitted before that it’s really the guy in the story that normally floats my boat or not…however, it’s great when a heroine comes along that I love as well. Sometimes it’s instantaneous and sometimes it takes a while. Here are the girls that caught our attention in a big way…
Not all romance books have villains/villainesses, but when they do…look out. It can make for some major angst as the troublemaker does their best to wreak mayhem and destruction. Here’s who we loved to hate in 2013.
